Some to Inspire you!

Good Morning Stampers:

This is a really quick post.  I just happened upon this site and had to share these lovely, lovely cards.  Enjoy them and I hope to have another post this evening.  I've been busy working on a fun project that's very easy and you will WANT to make!

OK, I think what I have done is loaded some video's and a card display at the VERY BOTTOM of my blog.  Sorry its way done there, but when I have a little more time I;ll clean it up and find a better place!!

Hi Stampers,

Well I have been playing this afternoon.  Making some projects and looking at what we might make in our next class!  Here's one that I recently purchased and made this afternoon.  It was great fun to make and only required a few punches and some paper.  It was easy to complete, I like those kind of projects.  Here a peek stampers.  Now as it is a gift bag/box I guess you would say, it can hold quite a bit inside.  I would say it would hold 2 dozen cookie!!  I tired to photograph it outside in the snow, but it was melting faster than I could get the shot !!

Good Day Stampers!

I thought I'd better let everyone know - its GONE!  The BIG SHOT has been won....

Kris Whidden won the Big Shot.  She is one of the stampers that attends the Sunday Monthly classes and is working her way to a nice collection of stamps for her card making needs.  She now has one of the MOST WANTED tools for her craft room.  I know Kris will enjoy this tool!  All the embossing, die cutting and paper crafting she'll be doing now, IMAGINE!  Maybe she'll share with us.

Congratulations KRIS!!!!

I also wanted to mention that I will be putting an order in on Dec 1st and will probably be the last one for the year as we want everything to be here in time for Christmas.  Keep in mind that i am personally offering NO SHIPPING until the end of December.  If you want anything for your Christmas stocking please let me know before the 1st as it will be ordered first thing on the 1st.  The New Occasions Mini is out and Demonstrators are allowed to order early.  One month early, and well, I can't wait, so my order will be in by 7am that day!!!  Lol  Although I can't share that new mini with you, I can make some projects and share them on my blog.  So be watching in early Dec for some fun new things on the blog.

Here's a photo of one of my groups that were here in October for our all day card making event.  It was my BFF's 40th birthday !!!  Whoops, did that slip.... Lol

Angela is holding the hand made rug I hooked for her!!

Here she is with her cake! 
Enjoy your day STAMPERS!!


Sorry Stampers if anyone is having a problem getting on my shopping site. 
Perhaps this will help, I think if you click on the logo it will take you there.

OK - I guess you still have to click on the SHOP NOW button on the left, then it will take you to my Stampin 'UP! Store, there you can click on SHOP NOW and over on the LEFT is the Extravaganza area.

Have a great day everyone!!

Up, Up & Away!

Hi Stampers,

Well that's the name of the next stamp set I thought I would play with.  It's a quick birthday card that's perfect for a little boy.  The only reason I say that is because I made it in blue, but of course the stamps set could be used for any birthday, really a whole lot of other things.  Maybe a cheer you up card, missing you card!  Well the sky's the limit.  What I really liked was it took less than 10 minutes to make.

Here it is!  The set is from the Up, Up & Away on page 63 of the 2011/12 IB& C catalogue.  It's hard to see here but of course I had to use some dazzling details on the balloons.

I also used the color coach to choose the colors.  I feel sometimes I just don't know what colors to put together and this tool is exceptional.  All I did was choose my main color - tempting turquoise and then found that color on the chart.  It then list the other colors that work well with it. 

Here's a close up of the balloons, maybe you can see all the BLING!!

Well I just had to show one more!  Although this is a gorgeous card, focus on the greeting.  I just LOVE the frame surrounding the sentiment.  This was made with the Textured Impression Embossing Folders found on page 218 of the 2011/12 IB& C catty.  It's super cool because you get two folders in this package.  Check it out!!!

I used a background stamp here and the leaves from Gently Falling set, which is a (two step) stamp set.  I embossed the leaves with gold and then cut them out.  Of course my favorite part is the greeting with the embossed frame around it.

Here's a close up!!


OK stampers, until next time when I have a few more moments.  Have a wonderful evening!!

Snow Much Fun!!

Hi Stampers,

Just thought I would post a card I finished from one of the BLOGS that I follow.   The site name is
" UStamp with Dawn and Friends" .  Now this particular site is one that I purchase and have one whole month of ideas for cards and projects. ( I will get a button put on my blog, that way you can just click on it and will be connected ASAP.   It has monthly themes and posts 2 new projects daily for 30 days I believe.  I think it's about $20.00 monthly.  I do love the site,and I get a Hugh amount of ideas from it.  Here's the card which is one of eight from this particular project set.

Isn't it wonderful.  It really was very simple and I got to use the NEW SILVER glitter paper found in the
Holiday Mini on page 41.  The buttons on the snowman are made with the Basic Rhinestones on page 198 of the 2011/12 IB&C catalogue.

I thought this will be a special card for someone special in my family.  Haven't decided which one that is yet!!  Lol

I hope to get one more completed  tomorrow and post for you!

Until then, happy stamping everyone.  See you girls on Sunday the 20th for our afternoon of Christmas Card making.

We will also have the BIG SHOT draw that day as well.  Keep your fingers crossed everyone.

OK, I have added the button for USTAMP with DAWN and FRIENDS!  You are welcome to try it out.  Hope it works.

November 14th - Reminder: NO SHIPPING FEES DURING NOV & DEC!!

As promised I thought I'd better get this posted.  To be honest I almost forgot, busy cleaning, laundry, you know the routine.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you all a little project I completed.  This lovely card box can be found on page 35 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue.  Now it doesn't come a beautiful as this is, but that's the fun part.  You get to design it how ever you want.  It pretty much only used two - 12x12 sheets of DSP and of course whatever embellishments you want to add.  I'm thinking if there is interest, perhaps this could be a class project in maybe Jan 2012.  If you guys are interested you must let me know as I have to order the card boxes before the Holiday Mini ends - Jan 4th 2012.

On that note, I received a down load today!  The NEW Occasion mini is out and effective Jan 5th.  I will pre-oder some things on Dec1st so I can show & tell.  Honest to GOD!  You guys are going to just, well .....  your going to LOVE whats in this MINI.  For who ever wins the Big Shot on the 20th will really be happy.  LOTS & LOTS of new Big Shot items.  OMG, I am just so excited about the new mini, can't wait to share.

For now, enjoy the Holiday Mini, it is soon coming to a close, so if you want Santa to bring that something special, better have him call me!

November 20th Ladies

Good Day Stampers!

November 20th is the day for our BIG SHOT draw, anyone interested in participating or adding their name to the draw must have an order in to me by November the 19th to qualify.  This prize is valued at over $120.00 and a must have ( OK, really want ) in your craft room.

Good Luck to everyone.  The class I have on the 20th will draw the name.

I have a photo here everyone to share with you.  I've been working on an ADVENT CALENDER for my granddaughter and I'm finally complete.  I'll have to make another next year for the grandson, this year he's just a little to young.

This was taken outside for better lighting, sorry no SNOW!  Not very Christmas looking.  But the project turned out great.

I put glitter on all the Numbers so they really sparkle.  Here's a close up view.  I want the center of the project to be 3D - so to speak.  I popped the tree out and a couple of gifts.

I wish I could figer this out so I could put my photo's together.  Lol

 OK, you'll have to scroll down for the next pictures, another little project I've been working on!
3D view

OK, I'll just add this photo's below.  Probably why I don't post very often, this thing doesn't do what I want.  Lol

Here is a FUN gift set and card I did.  It is one of the projects we will be completing in our last class for 2011 - Dec 6th.

Close up of the fun snow!  This is done with the
MICA FLAKES on page 21 of the Holiday Mini! 
You will LOVE this stuff!  Great in shaker frames also. 

To the left is the gift set: a hot choc package, or really anything you want to put in it.  It's a very nice size.  There's also a matching card for wishing someone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS

OK  Come back tomorrow!  I'll have another post!!  Promise ......
